Elia drank a cup of tea infused with Loloa grass and fell asleep immediately.
He had been lamenting that he hadn’t been able to sleep well lately, and when Henry saw him, he was relieved.
He used to rely on Lloyd’s mofo in such cases, but that Lloyd was no longer there. However, there was a good chance that they would meet again if they went to Runeside, where Slay was staying. We will have to be patient for a little while longer.
“Henry should leave me to keep an eye on him, too, and go to bed early.”
“We’ll take turns with the summonses. It’s part of the job.”
“All right, I’ll take you up on that. Then I’ll have to take you up on your offer. …… By now, the residents are probably up in arms about our disappearance. I’m worried.”
“I got to cast my net on that. I think I can figure out how the rest of them are behaving.”
Rosa has an excellent ‘Thief’ acquaintance. The way he put it, he’s asking for help from outside.
I’m sure he’s not a complete stranger to this sort of thing.
“…… oh, I’m sorry. If the cost of the outside help is too much, I’ll give you something extra.”
“You don’t need to worry about that. You’re doing a lot of good work for me, including the plan to ingratiate myself with The Saints and The Wise Men.”
Rosa told Henry without concealing it. You can take that statement itself as ingratiating, but it was typical of her to want to communicate her intentions clearly.
It’s a good thing that you’re able to do that. I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to get a good idea of what I’m talking about. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get away with it, but it’s probably the saintly Elia who is getting the most bang for her buck.
“It’s not just a matter of time before you’ll be able to get your hands on a new one. We could have done well for years now.”
“Misplaced …… button, is that not the case? I think it just surfaced. There was danger inside, to begin with. Especially the Roland guy.”
Henry remembered Roland the Brave, the ‘attacker’.
They had been doing well on the surface until now. Bridget, the drummer, of course, but all the other members had also been able to stand up to Roland, ostensibly as their leader.
His bloodline of bravery and his ability as an ‘attacker’ was high, and he was also very popular with ordinary women. There were certainly some nasal areas, but he was a good looking signboard.
The quiet and calm oldest Raymond was really dependable, and there was no one to the right of the dexterous Slay for miscellaneous tasks.
The kind-hearted Elia was the face that made a good external impression, the cheerful Bridget was the mood-maker, and Henry was the coordinator of the neutral viewpoint.
I was afraid of Roland, who had been getting crazier and crazier of late. The only people who could discuss with him on an equal footing right now would be the Holy Knight Raymond, or the mad warrior Berserker Gantez, who had equal ability. In the unlikely event that they were to resort to the use of force, they would have no chance of winning at first.
The changes in Roland have been especially noticeable in the past week. As was the case with Slay’s expulsion, it’s probably because Elia has started to reject him completely after Bridget’s expulsion. Apparently, Elia felt very much in danger for herself. We can only hope that he doesn’t do anything outrageous.
And the fact that Bridget was no longer with Roland probably had an effect on him.
Even though it wasn’t his true love, he didn’t feel bad about the fact that she adored him. Now there was no one to cheerfully encourage him in his sinking mental state.
“Speaking of which, I wonder how Bridget is doing. I can’t imagine her being …… depressed, but that guy was all Roland.”
Bridget has been missing since she was expelled from the party.
Has she left the royal capital, Central City, or is she spending her time somewhere quiet and depressed, or has she reopened and is acting as cheerful as usual?
I have no idea. At least Henry’s thin information network could not locate him. It is usually the ‘Thief’ who has a thick pipeline to such information, and if the person himself has disappeared, it’s not good enough.
The new bandit, Gregory, might know his whereabouts, but he didn’t want to talk to him personally. It was because his attitude towards the men and his attitude towards Elia was completely different. However, he and Gantez seemed to be on good terms with each other. I was somewhat annoyed with that point as well.
“I’m sure you’ll be able to find out more about …… Don’t worry about Bridget. I can’t tell you exactly where she is, but I can tell you that she’s safe.”
“I heard that he began to re-train as a bandit under strict guidance. He said it’s only been a few days, but he’s surprisingly motivated.”
“You’re lying…… I can’t believe it… not very well. That Bridgette is going to do it.”
Did Roland and Gantez abuse him and blow him away? Maybe he’d finally decided to turn his passion for Roland to the study of technology.
It’s hard to believe, but if that was the case, Henry wanted to support her in a small way.
After the second encampment, the magical city of Loonside was finally in sight before noon.
I’ve never encountered any kind of monster up to this point, so I didn’t have a chance to be Rosa’s bodyguard, but she was a ‘supporter’ in preparing the camp, eating, guarding, and taking care of the other details.
He was extremely thorough. And yet, he had a high level of fighting ability and even served as a baggage handler in the subspace room sub-space room. It’s not surprising that, despite the high cost of their hire, they’re hard to beat.
However, with the city in sight, a familiar trio of people appeared from behind.
Gantez and Gregory on either side. Roland in the middle. And not accompanied by Raymond, the heavily armed Holy Knight Raymond, who was expected to be the cause of the delay in movement.
They came after them much more swiftly than they had imagined. To the extent that the two of them disappeared from the dwelling house of the ‘Explosive Gale Blast Wind’, it was enough to make them wonder what they were so deadly about.
“…… Elia. Henry. Be careful.”
Rosa, who wore her cloak deep in her eyes, warned him strongly. They seem to have sensed the unusual appearance of the face that was chasing them.
Henry could see that at a glance. And upon seeing the lead person, Elia’s expression turned pale and her breathing became heavy.
“Hi. Henry. I finally caught up with you. …… You’ve done a hell of a job of it.”
Roland’s eyes, which were in the lead, were unusually wide and glittering.
